Josepha Waem - Flamandises
Born in Antwerp but having spent her childhood in Africa, Josepha Waem studied painting and drawing at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts of her hometown where she got her diploma with honours.
In 1968, she first came to Paris where she worked in films as an actress, as a dress designer and as a model while pursuing her painting career.
In 1972, she moved to Los Angeles where she concentrated on etchings on themes such as Hotel Room, under the skin and lipstick. In San Diego and San José, she also exhibited her soft sculptures (whose installation was filmed by French television). While in California, she also executed a series of portraits of film stars.
When she returned to Paris in 1985, she continued exhibiting works on paper in Brussels, Antwerp and Amsterdam.
She has been creative director at the major advertising firm Euro RSCG since 1991.
Her first one-woman show was at Jane Roberts Fine Arts in 2000.
